CM Punk has joked about the perception of him following his alleged backstage fight with The Elite back in September at All Out.
All Out should have been a joyous night for CM Punk as he recaptured the AEW World Championship in the show’s main event against Jon Moxley in his hometown of Chicago. However, things quickly turned sour after the show.
At the post-show media scrum, CM Punk launched into a vicious verbal assault against many of his colleagues including The Young Bucks, Hangman Adam Page, and Colt Cabana. Following that, reports have suggested The Bucks confronted Punk in his locker room leading to a physical exchange. Everyone involved – including Kenny Omega and company producer Ace Steel – was suspended but The Elite will return to AEW television at Full Gear.
Steel – Punk’s close friend – is believed to have been fired while the situation regarding CM Punk’s future still remains unclear as he also recovers from a serious injury suffered in his bout with Moxley.
Now while commentating for Cage Fury Fighting Championships, CM Punk has alluded to the fiasco and the perception of him when one of his fellow broadcasters joked about signing Punk for Fury Fighting Pro Wrestling, with Punk replying:
“I’m bad news, you don’t want me in the locker room.”
Fury Pro Wrestling with CM Punk next year? 🤣

Another announcer added “don’t let him do any press conferences” while Punk shared a good laugh with his commentary colleagues.
